Professional Artist , London trained in fine art and traditional arts. PGCE Tutor 20yrs, inc. ceramic and stained glass

Methodology

I am a life community artist and qualified teacher who has worked for many years with students suffering mental health problems, learning difficulties and disabilities.
I currently work as a free-lance artist delivering workshops over the years through local charities and Suffolk county council.
Therefore, I have a developed a strong links within the local organisational and charitable community network and know many contacts within Suffolk.

I most enjoy one to one connection, responding to human thoughts in the interactive practice and learning to distinguish the fine line between help and support. Judging when to stand back, how to encourage, how to acknowledge the small steps, draw on the positives, be receptive and respond flexibly to whatever situation arises.

Discovering the particular interests and pursuit toward creativity for a particular individual; then considering how to develop the ideas further - challenging myself to research in preparation time before tutor time .
A healthy, creative, happy mind is one in which people are able to tap into the creative, building blocks, of their personalities, these are often masked by problems with learning, being able to make sense of the world or having the resources to work through emotional pain or to make the necessary small steps towards reconstructing a day to day living confirmation of self-independence and existence; ,met by acquiring basics skills, looking after one’s self, social skills or concentrating on a task to see through to conclusion, all of which have huge self-achievement values attached. This can all start to emerge in the right kind of supportive arena- a safe and happy place to allow one to process things out at your own pace.
Until September 2014, I was the Art and Graphic Design curriculum manager working at HMP Highpoint, a Male Cat B/C prison. As a senior manager, I balanced the requirements of professional teaching practice with running a team, underpinned by responsibilities that specifically apply to working within a secure establishment. It is a challenging area to work one-to-one with sensitive individuals.

Experience

I am a fully PGCE qualified teacher 20 years experience. Current teaching Master at the Princes school of Traditional Arts (London) and leading various local community projects
I hve taught for over twenty years
I teach up to twelves students at time in drawing, painting , printmaking, batick and ceramics stained glass
